Last week Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson awarded 312 DHS employees from across the country for extraordinary service and outstanding contributions to the Department with the Secretary’s Award.
The Secretary’s Awards had not been given since 2008. A full list of Secretary’s Award winners can be accessed here.
“The Secretary’s Awards are a reflection of the character and commitment that I see in our employees throughout the ranks for DHS,” said Secretary Johnson. “Like so many others at this Department, the awardees today have performed well beyond what is expected, responding in extraordinary ways to obligations higher than themselves. They have set a sterling example for all 240,000 employees of DHS as we strive to keep our homeland safe, secure and resilient.”
